spice it up

With my strong aversion to mayonnaise, I’ve never imagined a day when I could enjoy pimento cheese sandwiches. Recently, I thought about substituting the mayo with cream cheese to make a smooth spread instead of the typically chunky Southern staple. To my surprise, a few other folks had thought of that, too…thank you, Google! Then I decided to add a little excitement with hot sauce.

Place 1 pound of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, half pound of shredded pepper jack cheese, 7 oz jar of pimentos (drained), 8 oz package of cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce (add less if you don’t enjoy a kick to your taste buds) in a food processor.

Then, spread onto toasted french bread, fresh vegetables, crackers or pita chips for tasty snack.

This recipe makes more than you’re likely to enjoy, so package some up to share.
